Yumi Zouma Alena Video
Mar 26, 2015 12:14pm | StereoGum
Yumi Zouma shared their new EP II mid-March, and today we’ve got a video for one of the tracks, “Alena.” Like the “Catastrophe” video before it, the story of “Alena” is a sad, hard one. Director Allie Avital Tsypin’s vision centers around a recovery group where the members share their struggles and hardships, even breaking […]




Crying go totally Rush on new single "Patriot," starting tour this week with Eskimeaux (who also has a new song)
Mar 26, 2015 12:13pm | Brooklyn Vegan

by Andrew Sacher

You may know New York trio Crying as a band that mixes chiptune and pop punk, but as their series of tweets screenshotted above points out, they're also huge fans of... Rush. And that's pretty apparent from their new single "Patriot," which is a departure from their earlier material. The song opens with an intro that bears an uncanny resemblance to Rush's "The Spirit of Radio," and the chorus bring in synths that recall Rush's mid-'80s new wave period. Not to mention Crying have a technical drummer who's a great fit for this kind of proggy workout. But when singer Elaiza Santos comes in with dream pop vocals, it's clear that Crying aren't just copying their heroes. They take on prog more like Mew or The Most Serene Republic, mixing it with more modern trends in indie. Listen for yourself below.

Crying are about to kick off a tour with Eskimeaux, but first they play a free NYC show on Friday (3/27) at Brooklyn Night Bazaar. That lineup's pretty great all around, with Crying's Run for Cover labelmates Teen Suicide headlining, plus Amanda X, LVL UP, Flagland and Washer.

Speaking of Eskimeaux, the Epoch member and Frankie Cosmos collaborator recently released the first single from her upcoming album, OK, which comes out May 12 via Double Double Whammy. It's called "Broken Necks," and it's an intricately-layered intimate pop song that would've fit nicely on former Carissa's Wier...

Stream: Porticos debut album Living Fields
Mar 26, 2015 12:00pm | Cosequence Of Sound

Portico Quartet formed in 2005 and gained a great deal of praise in their hometown of London and beyond. The group’s jazz-folk eventually warped into an ambient electronic sound, but that only led to a bigger following and more acclaim. But in 2014, Keir Vine left the band, just three years after replacing original member Nick Mulvey. Rather than fold, the remaining trio — Duncan Bellamy, Milo Fitzpatrick and Jack Wyllie — decided to reinvent themselves as simply Portico.

Now, they’re set to reintroduce themselves with a fresh debut entitled Living Fields, out April 7th via Ninja Tune. To help add new life to their new form, the trio tapped another trio of vocalists to collaborate on the album: Jamie Woon, fellow Ninja Tune artist Jono McCleery, and Joe Newman of alt-J. The vocalists aren’t merely guests, as they all know the band intimately, whether from touring with them (McCleery), living with them (Woon), or growing up with them (Newman and Wyllie were childhood friends).

That closeness aids in the sublime feel of the album. The vocals all feel like a natural fit for the alternatively glitchy and smooth compositions, sliding in like members of the outfit themselves. It’s a collection of structured ambiance, ethereal but knowingly corporeal. Living Fields is just the type of album a decade-old band needs to redefine itself without losing t...


San Francisco postpunks Male Gaze have a new record on Castle Face, touring West Coast (dates, streams)
Mar 26, 2015 11:54am | Brooklyn Vegan

by Bill Pearis

San Francisco's Male Gaze is the new band from Matt Jones of Blasted Canyons. He's got a strong melodramatic delivery, which gives them a gothy slant, but their music definitely leans on the "punk" in post-punk. Male Gaze just released a seven-song mini-LP, Gale Maze, via John Dwyer's Castle Face label (that Matt also helps run) and it's a real bruiser, hooky and danceable but hard-hitting and sneery. There's not a bum track on Gale Maze and it's not miles, sonically, from the stuff coming out of Denmark lately. Stream two tracks and check out the video for "Mr. Wrong" (which plays off the band's name), below.

Male Gaze are currently on a West Coast tour and play Seattle tonight. Let's hope they head east soon. All dates are listed below.

premiere: Stealing Sheep Not Real (live video)
Mar 26, 2015 11:50am | Gorilla Vs Bear

As enchanted as we were by the trippy, technicolor original video for the title track from Liverpool band Stealing Sheep‘s wonderful forthcoming Not Real LP, we might have easily dismissed a secondary “live video” as unnecessary, an inessential afterthought. We would have been mistaken; this one, though stark and simple, might somehow be even better. Shot by Ben Morgan at Vessel Studios in Liverpool. Not Real is out April 13.


Pfarmers The Ol River Gang
Mar 26, 2015 11:48am | StereoGum
Pfarmers are an amalgamation of a few bands and sounds. Danny Seim (Menomena, Lackthereof), Bryan Devendorf (the National), and horn player Dave Nelson (David Byrne & St. Vincent, Sufjan Stevens) convene to conjure a style that is all together distinctive. Along with announcing their new album, Gunnera, due later this spring, the trio shares a […]



Song : Hannah Cohen : Baby
Mar 26, 2015 11:42am | My Old Kentucky Blog

We’ve been listening quite a bit to the new album, Pleasure Boy (out March 31st via Bella Union), from NY-based chanteuse Hannah Cohen, but “Baby” was the one track we have been pining to share with the world from it. The song reverts back to the stripped vulnerability that she showcased on her fantastic Child Bride LP from a few years back. It is an absolute stunner that is sure to make the Lana Del Rey comparisons echo even louder. Listen below.


Members of The National and Menomena form Pfarmers, premiere The Ol River Gang listen
Mar 26, 2015 11:40am | Cosequence Of Sound

Pfarmers is a new band comprised of The Nationals Bryan Devendorf, Menomenas Danny Seim, and Dave Nelson, a horn player who’s collaborated with the likes of St. Vincent, Sufjan Stevens, and Beirut. Together, the three-piece is gearing up to release its debut album, Gunnera, on May 12th through Jurassic Pop.

Seim spoke about the inspiration for the LP:

The record is about a dream I had where Im reluctantly accepting a fear of drowning by focusing on being reincarnated as a giant Gunnera plant, which thrive on the banks of rivers (specifically the Jordan River i.e. the Biblical promised land) after I paint myself gold and sink to the bottom like the El Dorado of South American folklore.

In anticipation, Pfarmers has let loose “The Ol’ River Gang”. Chaotic and synth-happy, the track seems to draw more from Menomena’s experimental rock stylings than The National’s melancholic anthems. Listen in below.

Sticking to the South American folklore theme, Pfarmers are offering an “ultra limited collector’s edition” of the album; limited to just 50 copies, it will come with handmade seed bomb sculptures inspired by El Dorado folk art.

Gunnera Tracklist:
01. Benthos
02. You Shall Know the Spirit
03. Work for Me
04. El Dorado
05. The Ol’ River Gang
06. How to Build a Tube

Flag of Democracy reissuing albums for Record Store Day (stream the remastered 'Down With People')
Mar 26, 2015 11:35am | Brooklyn Vegan

by Andrew Sacher

Flag of Democracy is a hardcore punk band from the Philadelphia 'burbs. F.O.D. was formed in 1982 and are still going strong. Their first show was with Minor Threat, Agnostic Front, SS Decontrol, and Crib Death at a Better Youth Organization show in Camden, NJ. [Last.fm]
Flag of Democracy are remastering and reissuing a handful of their albums for this year's Record Store Day (4/18) via SRA Records. One of those is their third full length, 1990's Down With People, which we're premiering a full stream of in this post. If you're unfamiliar with the record, it kept the intensity of F.O.D.'s hardcore roots intact, while also embracing a melodic side that hinted at the poppier punk bands the '90s would bring. Anyone who's been listening to the record for years may prefer the version they're used to, but there's no question the remaster has these songs sounding bigger and cleaner. Check it out, with details on their other reissues, below.

The band is still playing live too. Anyone catch their Philly show a few months ago?
